By VINNIE RODI THIS past Wednesday, Remembrance Day, saw thousands of people across the country pause to acknowledge the many Australian soldiers lost during times of war. Some remembered fathers or grandfathers, others simply said a silent thanks to men they’d never known, while some thought of sons and daughters currently on tour in Afghanistan and Iraq. At Henderson Park a similar yet different story was unfolding, where standing in front of a monument to one of the region’s most decorated soldiers stood a woman, openly showing emotion for a man she’s never known. Victoria Christen (nee Pearse), 90, never met her father, Sgt Samuel Pearse, who died in World War One six months before her birth. And while she’s seen pictures, nothing could have prepared her for the wave of emotions that followed after the life-sized replica was revealed. “I’m very proud to be standing here today, and to see dad in front of me,” she said. “I knew the people of Mildura were going to turn it on, but this is just incredible. “From the pictures I’ve seen of him it’s a fantastic resemblance, and I couldn’t be happier to be here today, and share this moment with a number of

What’s on

in all major conflicts. Sgt Samuel George Pearse was born in Penarth Wales in 1897, moving to Mildura in 1911 with his parents and siblings. In 1913 he enlisted in the 73rd Company of the Victorian Rifles, before travelling to Melbourne in 1915, not yet 18-years-old, to enlist in the 7th Battalion AIF. His war service includes stints in Egypt, Gallipoli and the Western Front, with Samuel awarded the Military Medal for his actions during the Battle of Menin Road in 1917. During his career Samuel was twice wounded in battle, meeting future wife Catherine Knox during one stint in recovery in 1918, with the pair marrying a year later. Shortly after his wedding Samuel sought discharge from the AIF to join the 45th Battalion Royal Fusiliers, with the battalion part of the North Russian Relief Force. The group was deployed south of Archangel in the far north of Russia, with a role to protect the withdrawal of Allied forces that had been occupying the area since 1918. Shortly before boarding the troopship to North Russia, Sam received a letter from Catherine informing him that they were expecting their first child, Victoria.

TASTE of everything you ever wanted to know about anything… Can you cry under water? How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered? Why can you have ‘your two cents worth’... but it’s only a ‘penny for your thoughts’… Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity? Why does a round pizza come in a square box? What disease did cured ham actually have? How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Six weeks later he was killed during an engagement with Bolshevik forces 200 kilometres south of Archangel, and was later awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest honour a soldier can receive, for his actions. Victoria Catherine Pearse was born in February 1920, six months after her father was killed. Soon after her birth, Victoria’s mother decided to visit Mildura, staying with Sam’s parents, George and Sarah Pearse, for a short time. Katherine then moved to Sydney and remarried, with Victoria spending her entire life in New South Wales. In 1943 Victoria married Dick Christen, with the couple having two children, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And while she’s called Sydney home for most of her life, Victoria said a part of her would always remain here in Mildura with her dad. “I have a lot of family here in Mildura, and now with the statue I’ll be trying to make more trips up here to visit them and see dad,” she said. “My only regret in life is that I never got to know him, and personally I would rather have known him as a father than a hero. But this is wonderful, and I’m very proud of him.”

a look at the lighter side of life and other amazing things....

Why is it that people say they ‘slept like a baby’ when babies wake up every two hours? If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing? Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV? Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground? Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They’re going to see you naked anyway. Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat? Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They’re both dogs!

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from? If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons? Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune? And why did you just try singing the two songs above? Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window? Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead? Why do banks charge a fee on ‘insufficient funds’ when they know there is not enough money?

Two men met for the first time in Mildura this week, and as GRANT MAYNARD discovered, it was truly a meeting of the minds. Both passionate about recycling, the pair found a lot of common ground in their ideas about how we can tackle the world’s mammoth plastic waste problem head on, and it could well be a Mildura-based technology that holds the key...

‘Green’ light needed on waste action IT could well be that a Mildura-based recycling technology is the key to tackling one of the world’s most pressing waste challenges – what to do with all that plastic? It is everywhere – in our cities and towns, in our forests, clogging our waterways and polluting the oceans. It’s a big problem that needs solving... and fast, so when permaculture and sustainable living teacher Steve Cran met Ausplaztik recycling guru Chris Curran this week it was hard to keep up. You could say they made me ‘green’ with envy... these blokes are really switched on when it comes to practical, grassroots initiatives to save the environment. Steve had a head full of every day ‘green’ challenges – the legacy of his many years of teaching sustainable living practices both here and overseas. Chris, on the other hand, was able to offer solutions from amongst the growing stable of recycled plastics product that his Etiwanda Avenue factory turns out. It was truly a meeting of two like-minded souls. As fast as Steve came up with questions that needed an environmentally

A case in point was Ausplaztik’s slender, recycled plastic posts – created specifically to replace the more traditional steel ‘star post’.

Steve contended that the steel posts are heavy – increasing transport costs and creating handling challenges particularly in rough terrain – and expensive. Chris countered by showing Steve his com-

Learning centre celebrates first birthday MILDURA’S Total Learning Centre (TLC) celebrated a significant milestone recently, reaching its first birthday. Fun, games, and the most important ingredient to any birthday bash, cake, was on offer as dozens of mums and their children helped acknowledge the milestone, with one youngster in particular, Ruby Saris, 2, eager to embrace festivities by blowing out the birthday candles. Ruby’s mum Susan, who has been bringing her daughter to the TLC since it first opened, said she felt lucky to have a place like the TLC close to home. “It’s just nice to have a place where Ruby can come and play with other children, and where I can come and have a cup of tea and a chat with other parents,” she said. “I was a first time mum when I first started coming here, and having people in similar situations to talk to really helped me adjust.” Established as a place where families with pre-school aged children could seek advice and support, TLC coordinator Mel Watson said the the group had grown exponentially in a short time.

Rural roadsides revamp FREE mulch and native plants. That’s what property owners in the Mildura Irirgation District now have access to as part of a program to protect and enhance remnant native vegetation on rural roadsides. The Rural Roadside Revegetation Program assists rural landowners to re-establish indigenous vegetation along their roadsides. The project is being overseen by Mildura Rural City Council and portfolio Councillor for the Environment, Nick Cavallo, RIGHT, who said Council was actively committed to ensuring existing native vegetation located on roadsides throughout the region was maintained and improved. “This vegetation provides important movement corridors throughout the munici-

pality for native fauna as well as being valuable habitat,” he said. As part of the RRRP, Council supplies landowners with native plants that are appropriate to their particular area free of charge, allowing residents to plant their roadside frontage. In addition to plants, Council will now also provide water saving mulch from the Mildura Landfill to landholders within the Mildura Irrigation District who sign up for the program. “This particular initiative is available to rural landholders whose property adjoins a roadside and does not have concrete kerb and channel or gutter,” Cr Cavallo said. “It is important that suitable native plants

Evolution by demand “The TLC has definitely changed with demand,” she said. “Members of the community have asked for certain programs to be introduced, and we’ve definitely tried to accommodate them. “When we first started we wanted to be a place where parents with pre-school aged kids could bring their children, and word has certainly got out about us.” The centre offers a number of playgroups, craft and play activities, an information technology course for parents, and an Autism focused playgroup, with Mel saying that the TLC aimed to introduce a playgroup for local indigenous families, first-aid training and a number of other new programs in the future. She said that it was also important to continue to promote the group amongst the wider community. “While some people know we’re here and what we’re about, there are still a lot of families out there who don’t know anything about us, who may benefit by paying a visit,” Mel said.

More volunteers needed She said that with any community organisation, volunteers had become vital to the future of the centre. “You can never have too many,” Mel said. “To be able to introduce some of the programs we want to introduce we’re going to need more volunteers. Without them it just wouldn’t be possible to run a place like this, so it’s vital that more people come on board.” Mel said that the centre’s success wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Mallee Family Care and the Mildura West Primary School. “Mallee Family Care and the school especially have been wonderful,” she said. “Without the school’s support we wouldn’t have a place of operation, this is their celebration just as much as ours.” Mel said that everyone involved with the centre had been both excited and proud to reach their first birthday, and was looking forward to many more future celebrations. “We’ve had a lot of support during our first year, and hopefully this is the first of many birthdays to come,” she said. The TLC is located at Mildura West Primary School on 12th Street, and is open Wednesday to Friday from 9am to 4pm. More information is available by contacting Mel on 5023 0299 or 0437 077 689.

are used and as is the case with Council’s Urban Low Water Use Naturestrip Program, the landholder is responsible for maintaining the plantings and the condition of the mulch. “Any inappropriate, or unauthorised plantings, will be required to be removed by the landholder.” Landholders interested in this program should contact Council’s Biodiversity Officer for an information pack and provide details such as the site location and dimensions of the area. Once the signed agreement has been returned, Council will inspect the site for suitability and organise delivery of the appropriate volume of mulch. After the mulch has been spread by the landholder, Council will supply a suitable number of native plants for the area, to be planted by the landholder. Anyone interested in the program should contact Council’s biodiversity officer on 5018 8454.

Mildura Weekly - 13/11/09

Mildura now on high mozzie alert AS the temperature increases so too do the numbers of flies by day, and the number of mozzies by night. It is a cycle we are pretty used to here in Sunraysia, and it also signals a start for Mildura Rural City Council’s annual mosquito monitoring program – an effort to detect and control the potential spread of mosquito-borne diseases. Mozzies will be regularly trapped at four locations throughout the municipality for the next few months, and sent to Melbourne for identification and the isolation of diseases such as Ross River Virus and Arbo Encephalitis. Portfolio Councillor for Environment, Nick Cavallo, said the threat of disease from mosquitoes had to be taken seriously. “There are a number of mozzie species locally that are capable of transmitting disease,” he said. “Most mosquitoes simply pose a nuisance value, however, it is important for Council, and the com-

munity, to be vigilant as the mosquito season gets under way,” he said. Council makes weekly disease checks at a number of sites close to residential areas throughout the municipality, while treating

any breeding sites on public land when necessary. ‘Sentinel’ chickens are also tested on a weekly basis for the presence of mosquito-borne viruses. While Council does not spray for adult mos-

quitoes, major breeding sites are treated when required, Cr Cavallo said. “Council’s surveillance program helps ensure any potential spread of mosquito-borne diseases is detected early,” he said.

Up to 90 percent of mosquito breeding sites are a result of man-made activity, and Cr Cavallo said residents could help minimise the potential spread of mosquito-borne diseases by looking for, and eliminating any exposed water on their properties. “Mozzies thrive in shallow water and despite dry conditions early reports are showing numbers to be similar to previous years.” To reduce the chances of a mosquito breeding site in your neighbourhood, Mr Cavallo advised residents to overturn or empty any containers that might gather water, cover water storage areas, drain any stagnant or polluted water, and stock any ornamental ponds with fish that will eat mosquito larvae. For more information on mosquito control and how you can help, contact Council on 5018 8100 or visit the Health and Safety section of Council’s website at www.mildura.vic. gov.au

Assault on battery waste – no charge AN estimated 8000 tonnes of discarded batteries end up as potentially dangerous landfill each year, according to the Bureau of Statistics. The average Australian household uses more than 100 batteries a year in a ‘portable power’ frenzy that is getting worse year by year. That’s the reason householders are being asked to re-cycle old batteries instead of throwing them in the bin, and this week has been designated National Recycling Week, with an emphasis on battery returns. It’s an initiative that Battery World’s Mildura franchisee Nick Petrolo agrees with wholeheartedly. “With the increasing popularity of battery operated products such as electric toys and mobile phones, batteries have become one of the most common hazardous waste disposed of by households,” Mr Petrolo said. “Just as many of us already recycle household items such as tins, glass jars and plastic bags, we should also recycle our batteries to reduce the amount ending up as landfill and lessen the impacts on our environment. “National Recycling Week is a great way to remind everybody

P

hone

of the importance of recycling their old batteries.” He said statistics showed the average Aussie was using 18 batteries a year, while an average household with children uses 109 batteries. If none of these were re-cycled, it equates to around 8000 tonnes of used batteries ending up in landfill each year.

3GBband Broad

Mr Petrolo said Bureau of Statistics figures showed that batteries are the most common form of hazardous waste disposed of by Australian households, with 97 percent of people putting them out with the rubbish. He said this wasn’t a good form of disposal, as chemicals in batteries are toxic, and can contaminate soil and harm wildlife.

$

“Disposed of incorrectly, the heavy metals may leak into the ground when the battery erodes,” he said. “This contributes to soil and water pollution and endangers wildlife. Some components in batteries can be toxic to fish and make them unfit for human consumption. “Most batteries can be recycled, so we urge the community to be responsible and bring their used batteries into one of our stores so they can be disposed of safely.” Mr Petrolo said rechargeable batteries, in the form of nickel metal hydride, nickel cadmium, lithium, lead acid and lithiumion can all be recycled. These are commonly found in mobile phones, cameras, laptops, cars, trucks, boats and hundreds of other applications. He said as household/singleuse batteries cannot be recycled at the moment, consumers should use rechargeable batteries instead. “Products such as rechargeable Eneloop batteries can be used up to 1000 times, making them a much cheaper and ecofriendly alternative to single use batteries, not to mention that with every purchase there is a donation to Clean-up Australia,” Mr Petrolo said.

By the time he received approval, Riccio had died, and with him went any hope of establishing an Italian outpost. It is believed the first Italians to sight the Australian continent were sailors, aboard the Spanish expedition led by Magellan in 1520. One, Antonio Pigafetta, kept a log of that journey. Another early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;New Australianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was Mario Sega, a sailor from Genoa, who arrived aboard the Dutch ship, Eendracht, in 1616. He jumped ship at Shark Bay in West Australia and eloped with an Aboriginal woman. The next Italian visitors

were Giacomo Matra and Antonio Ponto, who were on board the Endeavour with Captain James Cook during his voyage of discovery in 1770. In the early days of colonisation a handful of Italian convicts and settlers arrived, including several Sicilian sailors convicted and transported by the British. In 1843, three Italian priests were brought to Sydney by John Polding, the first Catholic bishop in Australia. They were followed by many more nuns, priests and missionaries who supported the work of the Irish led Catholic church in many parts of Australia. Italian migrants began arriving in Australia in the mid-1800s, motivated by the need for work, the search for new opportunities, and the deprivations caused by war,

When the gold ran out, many Italians left Victoria to work in other parts of Australia. Those who stayed established small, mainly agricultural communities in country Victoria. The Italian cultural association â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Dante Alighieri Society â&#x20AC;&#x201C; established a branch in the city in 1896, its first outside Italy. By then, around 1500 Italians lived in Victoria. poverty, crop failure and natural disaster. The majority of migrants came from rural communities, where seasonal work was a way of life. As such, they possessed a wealth of practical knowledge, and many were also skilled tradesmen. Between 1876 and 1900, around

300,000 people were leaving Italy annually to seek work in South America, France, the United States and Australia. They came with the intention of staying a few years and returning home. By the 1850s, there were already around 3500 Italians and Swiss Italians in Victoria and New South Wales. More

immigrants followed in the wake of the discovery of gold in West Australia and copper in Queensland. Hundreds of Italians were lured to Victoria by the 1850s gold rushes, including Raffaello Carboni, who witnessed and documented the famous Eureka Stockade in 1854, calling the actions of the soldiers a â&#x20AC;&#x153;foul deed, worthy of devils.â&#x20AC;? When the gold ran out, many Italians left Victoria to work in other parts of Australia. Those who stayed established small, mainly agricultural communities in country Victoria. The Italian cultural association â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Dante Alighieri Society â&#x20AC;&#x201C; established a branch in the city in 1896, its first outside Italy. By then, around 1500 Italians lived in Victoria. Italians continued to

settle in Victoria in the early years of the 20th century, many to escape economic hardship in their homeland. However, the 1925 Immigration Act created a quota system limiting people from selected countries, and by 1928 the number of Italian immigrants allowed into Australia was strictly limited. After World War II Italian immigration increased dramatically, including large numbers of agricultural workers from southern Italian regions, including Sicily and Calabria. Because many who arrived were single men, proxy marriages to women back in Italy were common practice. The predominant pattern of settlement was chain migration: a male relative would arrive first, establish himself and then sponsor

Living a full life in ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S a story that was repeated hundreds of times before and after the Second World Warâ&#x20AC;Ś an Italian migrant separated from his loved ones as he leaves his country of birth to make a new life in Australia. This new breed of migrant worked long, exhausting hours in a variety of labouring jobs, battling stifling heat, harsh conditions, homesickness, language and cultural barriers. They were uncomplaining. Some were able in a relatively short time to make enough money to allow their families to join them in Australia. For others it meant waiting several years. Among them was Carmela Simonetta, whose husband Guiseppe left Italy in 1950 to establish a home and a better life for his family. The couple had married in 1928, living in a small village in southern Italy. Guiseppe was to join hundreds, later thousands, of Italian migrants hoping for a better life in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Lucky Country.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Soon after his arrival he was joined by his older sons Larry, Nick and Fred, HjcgVnh^VEgZhi^\Z

daughters Maria and Vittoria, and younger sons Tony and Norm. It was a happy home-coming when Carmela was finally able to join her family in Australia in 1956, and those early years will be one of the main topics of discussion on Sunday week for a huge family get-together at the Red Cliffs Club to celebrate Carmelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th birthday. Carmela was born on November 17, the second of seven children to Rosa Nicola Mazza. After her marriage to Guiseppe, she also had seven children, and cared for the younger ones by herself until they were able to join their father in Australia, where she joined them six years later. Guiseppe and his sons had set up home in Adelaide, and after Carmela joined them, they remained there for four more years before buying a fruit block at Cardross in 1960. It was to be Carmelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home for the next 39 years. Daughter-in-law Andrea Simonetta said Carmelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;open house,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and over the years it was the venue for many family gatherings, where immediate family, cousins, uncles and aunts

connection the passage of wife, children, siblings and paesani (people from the same region). Settlements sprang up across the country. Many new arrivals brought the trades for which their region was famous: fishing, music, figurine making, market gardening, terrazzo paving and tailoring. In 1855, a Sardinian vessel, the Goffredo Mameli, brought 84 immigrants. In 1881, 317 Italian migrants were accepted as refugees after a failed attempt to settle an island off New Guinea. They eventually settled near Lismore in what became known as New Italy. By the end of the century there were Italian-born doctors, artists, musicians, priests, engineers, scientists, businessmen and intellectuals in Australia, many of

Italian migrants arrived and through chain migration, established close-knit communities. In the early 1900s, Sicilian fishermen established a fishing industry on Australia’s eastern seaboard. Italian migration increased greatly after Australian Federation in 1901. This was partly due to the enactment of the Immigration Restriction Act (commonly known as ‘the White Australia Policy,) allowed Italian migrants to settle in Australia to replace other lost labour. At the time of the first Commonwealth Census in 1901, the Italian-born population had increased to 5678 and by 1911, to 6719. Following the turmoil of WW1 Italian passenger liners carrying immigrants began to operate on the Australian route. Most of the migrants

were men and found agricultural or factory work. The sugar industry attracted many workers to Queensland, construction projects and farm work to Victoria and mining and fishing to West Australia. When the migrants had saved enough money they would often send for their families. Scattered all over the country were small businesses, chiefly fruit shops and the cafes and coffee bars which would have a significant impact on Australian life. During WWII, Italians living in Australia were considered ‘enemy aliens’, including those born in Australia of Italian parentage. The first Italians to become prisoners of war were the sailors and passengers of Italian ships berthed in Australian ports or sailing territorial waters. 268 Italian seamen were interned.

By 1942, 3631 Italians living in Australia had been interned. Internment ended in 1943 when, following an armistice with the Allies, Italy joined the war against Nazi Germany. Between 1947 and 1976, social, political and economic uncertainty in Italy and encouragement from a government struggling to cope prompted about 360 000 Italians to migrate to Australia where there was a desperate shortage of labour and a belief that substantial population growth was essential for the country’s future. Most of the new arrivals settled in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide and there was a corresponding shift from agricultural to factory work. Although there were limited settlement services provided, much of the migration

was ‘chain’ migration where people joined other family or community members who had already migrated and were assisted by them. People from the same village or region settled near each other and this helped maintain cultural links. Australians of Italian heritage have made a significant contribution to the cultural, social and economic life of Australia. Today Italian Australians are prominent in politics, sport, journalism, the law, and the arts and have had a considerable influence on the growth of Australia’s construction, food, wine, fishing and tourism industries. They are spread through Australia, and there is no doubt that regional ‘outposts’ such as Mildura have benefited greatly because of ‘The Italian Connection.’

The Lucky Country would regularly come together for various celebrations. Sadly, Guiseppe passed away in 1972 at the age of 65, but Carmela continued living on the block, supported by family and friends. At the age of 90, she moved into Red Cliffs to live with youngest son Norm and his family, with a small unit to herself, and where she settled in well. Andrea said it never ceased to amaze family members how Carmela adapted, how she has remained agile, and with the ability to embrace many changes, and to remember many events of the past and the present, especially in relation to family members. “She simply takes everything in her stride,” Andrea said. “Nine years ago she fell and broke a hip, and we thought it might be the beginning of the end, but Carmela had it fixed, got on with her rehabilitation without any grumbles and was back on her feet within weeks. “She is so easy to please, and is willing to help the family with anything

she can. She is curious and alert, and will be aware of the smallest change in the family routine, she knows when school holidays start and end, and on what days all the children are playing their different sports.” Andrea said Carmela’s thirst for knowledge was endless, and she often inquired about ‘the ins and outs’ of family business, offering advice and solutions. Recovering yet again from another fall three weeks ago, this time fracturing a femur bone, Carmela is once again in rehabilitation, but back on her feet and looking forward to her birthday celebrations. And there will be plenty of family helping her celebrate at the club, among them many cousins and friends, as well as her seven children, 25 grandchildren, 42 great grandchildren and nine great great grandchildren. • LIFE AND TIMES: A favourite family photograph of Carmela, ABOVE, and again, ABOVE RIGHT, with her brother Dominic, centre, and Guiseppe, some decades ago and RIGHT, with great granddaughter Alicia about two years ago.

Sorry fellas, this is a garage for girls only By GRANT MAYNARD THEY’RE recognised as one of the fastest growing motorcycling demographics – they’re the girls doing it for themselves. No longer content to ‘sit behind their man’ and watch the world pass them by, they’ve got their own bike and they’re “ridin’ and wrenchin’” as the saying goes. There are many women now making a name for themselves in the motorcycling world, for many decades generally held to be the province of men. Names like Sara Liberte, the motorcycle photographer, custom motorcycle designer, author and original ‘garage girl’; and Jody Perewitz, daughter of custom bike builder Dave, and an integral member of the team at Perewitz Cycle Fab. They are the forefront of a new wave of independent female motorcyclists, and exactly the women next Friday night’s Quick-Fix Motorcycles’ ‘Garage Party’ is aimed at. “During the past decade particularly, women have increasingly embraced the sport of motorcycling – seeking the experience associated with an open road, polished chrome and a sweet sounding engine,” Quick-Fix’s 19-year-old Annie Walker said. She said that the latest figure from the iconic Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company alone showed 12 percent of new HarleyDavidson purchasers are women, compared to just four percent in 1990. “The Motorcycle Industry Council in America now estimates that in that country one in 10 motorcyclists is now a woman,” Annie said. “And just as we follow America in so many other ways, that number is growing in Australia too... but one of the greatest hurdles for women wanting to get into the sport is that they are unsure of where to start... that is where our Garage Party comes in. “It is designed to provide an inviting environment for women to learn more about motorcycling and to meet other women with a similar interest. “Party guests can expect activities that will be both entertaining, and informative, with topics including a review of the basic motorcycle controls, how to customise a motorcycle’s ergonomics

“Women tend to spend more time investigating the sport prior to getting involved. Garage Party events give women an interactive way to gather information and have fun doing it.”

• LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER: Annie Walker is following her mum into the ‘saddle’ to enjoying the sport of motorcycling as a rider rather than a pillion. to suit the individual and how to choose suitable riding gear. “Women and men ride for the same reasons... its how they get going that can take a different path.

“Women tend to spend more time investigating the sport prior to getting involved. Garage Party events give women an interactive way to gather information and

have fun doing it.” Annie said the tried and true formula that will be used for the region’s first ‘girls only garage party’, will be to organise those at-

Garage Girls now on the Web THE increasing interest of women in the sport of motorcycling has prompted a rash of dedicated websites, including the famous www.garage-girls.com. “If you have any interest in the ‘garage lifestyle’, this is site is for you,” the intro on the home page reads. The site combines topics like motorcycles and motorcycle repairs with health, beauty, nutrition, and all things related to “a fun, savvy, artful garage lifestyle.” In the ‘Body’ section you will find information on keeping up with a healthy lifestyle from exercise to recipes to overall health info, new health and beauty products, fashion, art interests, to general interests such as recommended books, music, movies, etc.

SCOOTERS

LIFT CHAIRS

In the ‘Machine’ section the spotlight is on “knowledge and interesting information relating to anything you can find in your garage.” That means anything from an explanation of a four- stroke engine to changing fluids; picking up a dropped bike; having the proper tools; testing new products as well as exploring ways to individualise/customise your bike. In ‘The Garage’ section you will find specific topics such as ‘tools’, ‘riding gear’ and ‘oil and lubes’. “Here we give our viewers useful information to browse through for use like a library. A source they can go to for help with something specific or to troubleshoot, or just use to refresh knowledge,” the site says.

tending into small groups so that they can get their first taste of the camaraderie that goes along with riding. Then each group will, in turn, visit four information ‘stations’, including: • ‘Motorcycle Orientation’ to learn the basic differences between Harley-Davidson model families. • ‘Motor Clothes’ to discover the important attributes needed in head-to-toe motorcycle gear. • ‘Motorcycle Self Service’ a guide to maintaining your own motorcycle. • ‘How to Pick Up a Motorcycle’ to show that just about anyone can handle the weight of a motorcycle and right it after it has fallen over. “Between stations, those attending will get the chance to meet and talk with each other, as well as hearing from women who are already living with a motorcycle,” Annie said. “The Garage Party will give women a no-pressure chance to learn, socialise and ask questions. “We’re excited to provide an event for women who are looking for information about getting into the sport but aren’t sure how to do it.” The girls-only Garage Party, to be hosted by Quick-Fix Motorcycles next Friday night, from 7pm at 7th Street East, Mildura, is free but places will be limited and bookings are encouraged.

Sunbeam puts faith, and $$, in the future

is also offered to each apprentice on completion of their Level II Certificate.” As an initiative backed by Rural Skills Australia, the program is open to all horticulture farmers, and its aim is to sponsor a select number of young Australians as they work on through their Australian apprenticeship. Since its inception in 1995, Rural Skills Australia has worked to encourage and foster improved rural industry involvement and contributed significantly to the task of achieving a 15-fold increase in the number of related trainee and apprenticeship commencements each year to combat an aging rural workforce and shrinking communities.

THE giant Sunbeam company has celebrated its upgraded $2 million Irymple processing plant with a series of open days for staff, growers and the public, and launched an innovative young farmers program to signal its confidence in the future. The company’s chief operations officer Richard Findlay was upbeat last week when talking the future, welcoming news on water allocations for farmers, increased interest in dried fruit production, and early contracts for 2010 that guaranteed the “strong” prices of 2009. Among the prices was $1900 a tonne for five-Crown light fruit. Mr Findlay said Sunbeam’s Irymple plant was the biggest in Australia, and the upgrade meant it now had the capacity to double its annual output, processing and packing local and interstate fruit for the domestic and export market via processing facilities that were the equal of anything in the world.

International interest Mr Findlay said that while most of the processed fruit was sold within Australia, there was increased interested from outside the country following a strong marketing campaign, and with Australia’s growing reputation for producing top quality fruit. He said the farming community was still the lifeblood of Australia, and Sunbeam, as primary producers and marketers of Australian dried fruit and nuts, was committed to ensure it thrived into the future. “There are now more than 400 Australians employed in the processing of Sunbeam Dried Fruit and Nuts in Mildura, Angaston and Renmark,” he said. “Our brand is a major economic and social supporter of local and regional communities and the Australian economy.” Mr Findlay said Sunbeam’s recent $2 million investment would ensure that the company continues to

produce quality Australian fruit for years to come. “It also reaffirms our commitment to the future of the Australian farming industry, as does our partnership with Rural Skills Australia to launch the Sun-

beam Future Farmers Fund.” Mr Findlay said the Sunbeam Future Farmers was an initiative to give young people living in rural Australia a start in the farming industry, and to secure the future of Australian

farming. “At a time when the age of farmers is increasing and rural communities are shrinking, maintaining the skill base within the agricultural industry is becoming increasingly important,” he said.

Chief Executive Officer for Sunbeam, Michael Bracka, agreed, saying Sunbeam had been investigating the best way to support local farmers, and decided that encouraging young Australians to take up a career on the land was the best way to give farming a sustainable future in Australia. Mr Bracka said the Sunbeam Future Farmers program was designed to match farmers with young Australians considering a full, part-time or school-based Australian apprenticeship in Production Horticulture. It would enable the apprentice to develop practical skills on the land, and receive a Level II Certificate in Production Horticulture. “The program provides a financial incentive for the farmers by contributing to the cost of the apprenticeship,” he said. “A further incentive

Rural Skills Australia representative Tony Dwyer welcomed the partnership with Sunbeam. “Through the Sunbeam Future Farmers Fund initiative, it is hoped that this growth can be replicated across many production horticulture sectors into the future,” he said. Mr Bracka said that Sunbeam, as Australia’s largest dried fruit brand, understood the value of Australia’s rural communities and farmers. “More than 500 growers supply Sunbeam with quality dried fruits and nuts,” he said. “Sunbeam sees the Sunbeam Future Farmers program as a way of thanking the rural industry for their continued support. “Our aim each year is to increase the number of Sunbeam Future Farmers Fund applicants. If we do this the program will be a success and we’ll be doing our part to help the future of the Australian farming industry and ensure high quality products for our customers.” People wanting to know more about the unique program can access information by visiting the website sunbeamfoods.com.au

Last week, Mildura Weekly guest writer JANELLE LEE took readers on an emotional journey to the graves of our war dead in France – she decided to add Germany to her European vacation, visit the Brandenburg Gate and…

A wall of silence… WITH the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall approaching, and knowing that it had fallen on the day my daughter was born, I had added Germany to my itinerary for my European vacation in the hopes of getting a piece of the wall for her 21st birthday next year. I didn’t know much about Germany except they liked beer, they invented Adidas shoes and aspirin, and they lost two world wars… both of which they started! Travelling through the German countryside I gave up counting the wind turbines that dotted the landscape. I wondered if I could get council approval for one to be put into my Gol Gol backyard, as they are an impressive looking piece of equipment. Arriving in Berlin I was soon to find that Berlin is actually the city of two’s – two zoos, two aquariums, two airports, two opera houses etc. I also found out that they didn’t like the French, they love David Hasselhoff (for reasons that totally elude me) and McLeod’s Tochters (Daughters) dubbed in German made more sense than the original. Catching bus 100 we

the world according to

Janelle Lee were soon at the Brandenburg Gate where somehow I managed to find myself smack bang in the middle of a union rally. I joined the Colombian contingent, as they had the best and most colourful banner. The next morning I woke to the sound of the rain… which wasn’t so bad except we were booked on a bike tour. Booking a bike tour four months ago seemed like a good idea at the time. Now, with reality telling me that I hadn’t been on a bike for over 20 years… along with the torrential downpour, was suggesting that I may be in need of more travel insurance. We made our way to the tour office, to be informed

that the best time to see the city was during a torrential thunderstorm. There went my hopes of a cancellation. Along with the 20 other fools I picked out my bike. “Do you have one with training wheels?” I asked. The guide laughed. “Oh, you Aussies.” He obviously didn’t realise I was serious. My anxiety of not being on a bike for so long was dismissed, with the guide telling me that he had people who had never been on a bike before, and it was just like riding a bike. That didn’t make me feel any better, and neither did the Dutch guy who bragged about what he could and couldn’t do with a bike. • Continued Page 17

$2500 windfall for eco-friendly students By VINNIE RODI GOL Gol Public School students started their week the best way possible on Monday, being named runners-up in the national Australian Recycled Cartonboard Schools Competition. The school’s achievement was a culmination of 10 weeks of hard work, with students promoting the importance of sustainability within their community. And although their entry didn’t win the first place prize of $10,000, coming second did have its advantages, all $2500 of them! ‘Writer in attendance’ Mildura Weekly’s feature writer, Janelle Lee, and teacher Susan Mason spearheaded the campaign, with Janelle’s group of grade 5/6 students taking up the challenge. Each student received a certificate recognising their contribu• WINNERS ARE GRINNERS: Gol Gol Public tions to the project, with Janelle School’s Lauren Fraser, 12, and Sarah Levey, saying that she was in shock over 8, were amongst the group that won a $2500 the win.

ing runners-up, or winning, had never been the main goal for group, they were still proud to be recognised. “We didn’t enter the competition expecting to win anything,” she said. “Personally I saw the competition as a way to pass on important messages to our students and the community.” The competition focused on

National competition coordinator Phil Enright, who made the trip from Brisbane to present the school with their award, said Gol Gol’s achievement seemed all the more remarkable due to the group’s limited resources. “The way this school strove to engage their community was just phenomenal,” he said. “And while their entry wasn’t the most creative, the fact that they engaged their community so efficiently through the media was very impressive.” The recognition coincides with National Recycling Week (November 10 to 16), with Principal Glen Walker saying that the prize money would be put into the school’s environmental projects. “We’ve been trying very hard, not just through this program but through other projects, on teaching students about sustainability,” he said. “As a school we pride ourselves on giving it our best, and we’re just really happy and excited with our performance.”

A wall of silence… 13/11/09 - Mildura Weekly

www.sunraysiaonline.com.au

• From Page 13 In blinding rain I wobbled along, right at the back of the pack. The Dutch guy whizzed past me… he must have thought he was in the Tour de France. No one likes a showoff. I was praying for a puncture… for him, not me. The rain hadn’t eased up as we arrived at Checkpoint Charlie. The hot chocolate van beckoned. We made our way to one of the small sections of wall that still remain. It was protected by a fence. I thought that was interesting, if not ironic. The wall caused the destruction of 13,000 marriages overnight. Families were torn apart. The escape stories are legendary. We stood under a window where desperate families threw their kids from an office building in the hope they would be caught by other family members on the other side. Authorities soon fixed that… they bricked in all the windows. We heard the story of the four-year-old boy who drowned in the river as his family watched helplessly from the western side… while East German guards watch from their vantage point. No one could save him. If the guards went to help they would have been shot, and the family couldn’t leave the West to save him. Communism versus capitalism, equating to utter madness. “There was a bit of confusion when the border was to open,” our guide began. “The hierarchy gave a live press conference about the issuing of visas, and the bumbling politician was asked when the visas were going to be given out. In his confusion and unable to read his own notes he declared, ‘Immediately.’

Within minutes of this being broadcast, tens of thousands of East Berliners descended on the checkpoints, demanding to be let through. “The West Berliners on the other side began to chant. The guards had no idea as the West Berliners began to climb up onto the wall, demanding they be set free. They began an assault on the wall. The guards gave up and the East Berliners came marching into the West, to the cheers and de-

set on fire… most now believe it was organised by Goebbels, but at the time the official version (Hitler’s) was vastly different. Hitler declared that it was the work of terrorists out to destroy the country. He even paraded the ‘culprit,’ a poor, unfortunate and most likely innocent man, to confirm his version …it had the desired effect. Hitler promised to protect the people. The people listened… worse

light of the huge crowd. It was a great day,” he declared, “A great day.” Our next stop was Hitler’s bunker. “It’s over there,” the guide said. “It’s where Goebbels killed himself, while his wife killed their six children before killing herself. He didn’t want the Russians to get his children.” We didn’t stay long. Arriving at the Reichstag (German Parliament building), we learned how Hitler managed to come to power. He didn’t have the support of all the people… in fact most opposed him, but this was to change quickly. Somehow the Reichstag was

broke down, as the emergency elevator needed six people to operate it. He never stayed the night… neither did anyone else. But there were plenty of visitors, and the guest list read like the who’s who of evil. I stood on the balcony where Hitler had stood all those years ago. I travelled in his elevator. I looked over the same landscapes of Germany and Austria that he did. The Eagle’s Nest was given to him for his 50th birthday by Martin Bormann. Japan gave him a big rug… Mussolini gave him the marble fireplace. All I could think of was what I was going to get for my 50th.

still, they believed him. I was eager to learn more about a man who had shown himself to be the epitome of evil. Having earlier visited his summer hideaway, known as the Eagle’s Nest, had convinced me that Hitler was paranoid. He wouldn’t travel in reverse in his car. The driver would take him through the tunnel to the elevator, let him out before going out of the tunnel to turn the car around, reversing back along the tunnel to collect him. And it’s a long tunnel. Hitler would always have six people in the elevator with him in case it

After a big lunch (where the beer flowed faster than the river Spree) we headed off again. Maybe it was the lunch …maybe it was the over-confidence, or maybe it wasn’t as simple as ‘riding a bike’. But outside the President’s home and in full view of everyone I came a cropper. I knew it was going to happen, but I was powerless to stop it. As I was falling ever so ungraciously to the ground, I was thankful for my travel insurance, and wondered if my airlift home would be in economy. I hoped not. Our guide came running towards me. I reassured him that it was only my pride that was hurt. The flying Dutchman came over to see what damage I had done. I assured him and everyone else that I was fine… I wasn’t to know the bruising would take a week to leave. “The President is home,” our guide announced, “his flag is showing.” The President might even have seen me fall. He certainly didn’t rush out to help. “David Hasselhoff is going to sing at the 20th anniversary of the collapse of the wall,” our guide announced. I thought to myself… Why are the Germans continuing to punish themselves? The guide stared at me… oops, I had actually said it out loud. “We are celebrating with dominoes to denote the wall coming down,” he continued. Desperate to make up for my earlier faux pas I smiled, and asked if David Hasselhoff was going to start it off. “Thank you… that’s a great idea,” he said. Sometimes I really should just stay quiet.

SERVICING THE SUNRAYSIA DISTRICT FOR 30 YEARS

Mildura Weekly - 13/11/09

www.milduraweekly.com.au

Support urged for SCR fund-raising SUNRAYSIA Cancer Resources kicked off a concentrated five weeks of fund raising with an Oaks Day outing enjoyed by about 100 district women. Champagne was the order of the day, which included a series of ‘sweeps’ and a phantom call of the Oaks by MC Brendon Gledhill. Vicki Jardine gave the funds a boost by taking around an ice bucket for “spare change’ late in the day, and it brought the total raised to almost $5000, equating to keeping Sunraysia Cancer Resources in operation for five weeks. SCR was also the recipient of the gold coin donation at the Telstra Countrywide Road To Tamworth contest held at the Coomealla Club, which brought in another $286.10, along with a pre-paid mobile phone. Red Cliff’s Players have donated proceeds from last night’s performance of Shenanigan’s Wake, and on Sunday, November 29, more money will be raised from the Wentworth Gymkhana, Pet Show and Family Fun Day, from 9.30am at the Wentworth Show Grounds. Entries for the Gymkhana can be made by phoning Judy Lamb on 50272479, and the Pet Show contact is Margo Renowden on 50272345. The final fund-raiser for 2009 is a Pleasant Sunday at

the Sandbar on December 13, starting at midday, and featuring a band, meals, raffles and auctions for ‘treasures’ such as a signed race boot worn by Mika Kallio at this year’s GP at Phillip Island, framed Gary Ablett Jnr series of photos, framed and signed James Blundell poster, acquired at the Telstra Road To Tamworth, and much more. Jenny Gledhill from SCR has urged continuing public support for group activities. “The support we receive from the community and business’ is very much appreciated,” she said. “It all helps to get the word out in the community that we exist, and are there to help anyone touched by a cancer diagnosis, whether they are the patient, a family member, or friend. We also welcome inquiries from school children who need help with a school project involving a cancer-related topic.” Jenny said SCR also welcomed people who wanted to volunteer time to help out in the shop-front, or with fund raising, as the group doesn’t fit any of the Government funding criteria, and as yet hasn’t found a philanthropic trust category that it can slot into, so is reliant on fundraising activities, and community and corporate assistance in order to provide its services.

Mildura owes a huge debt of gratitude to the Chaffey brothers. Last week we told part of their story, as seen through the eyes of Mildura’s Cr Mark Eckel, who is back home after visiting the area of California where George Chaffey pioneered an irrigation scheme in the 1880s. Mark says the visit reminded him of…

The green, green grass of home… IT was Thanksgiving Day in America, 1881, when George, RIGHT, and William Chaffey met with high-profile and wealthy land-owner Captain Joseph Garcia at his ranch, in a place now called Etiwanda, near the San Antonio Canyon in southern California. William was attracted by the quality of the land, which he thought was suited for sub-dividing into small fruit farms. George was attracted by the potential water supply captured and dispersed by the nearby mountain ranges. The three struck an agreement for the house, the water rights, and 1000 acres of land. The Chaffey Brothers were in business for the first time. Mark Eckel says he was fascinated to hear the full story during a council goodwill visit. He says it is best explained in a well-researched and written account by historians Robert Ellingwood and Marie Boyd, and which now holds pride of place in Upland Public Library. According to the history books, George was anxious to secure the interest of his Canadian friends in their new venture. He wanted a good name for the colony, a name that would be pleasing to the ear of a Canadian, as well as family associations. Etiwanda, the renowned and popular Lake Michigan Indian Chief, who had established friendly business relations with George’s much-loved uncle Benjamin Chaffey, was the name George chose for his first irrigation colony. The first surveys for Etiwanda were completed in 1882. The land was divided into 10-acre blocks, and precious water was harnessed from the mountains and supplied to every block by cement pipe, a decision that insured growth, and protection against drought, which had destroyed so many early settlements in the West. Delivering water in this manner through cement pipe later became the hallmark for towns throughout California.

Living up to its name, “Community of Many Firsts,” Etiwanda was one of the first California communities to offer its residents innovative public services and amenities for those times. The Etiwanda Mutual Water Company was California’s first mutual. It was designed by George Chaffey and a friend, Luther Holt, to prevent water wars, which were then common between newly-formed towns in the West. George was also the first engineer in the West to use mountain streams to generate electric current. He installed a small dynamo operated by the down-rushing torrent from one of the canyon streams. This provided electricity for a 3000-watt arc lamp on a tower at George’s house. This strange white light could be seen many miles away at the town of Riverside. Los Angeles civic authorities immediately became envious, and hired George to install their first six street lights. George eventually became president and engineer of the Los Angeles Electric Company. Chaffey’s Etiwanda home also contained the first long distance telephone in California, and it retained that distinction for many years.

George Chaffey, with the help of surveyor J. C. Dunlap, then designed what were to become the cities of Ontario and Upland… with the survey work, plans and diagrams done from the study in his Etiwanda house. The original purchase of more than 6000 acres stretched from 24th Street in the north, to the Southern Pacific railroad tracks in the south. George also purchased the Kincaid Ranch in San Antonio Canyon, which became the water source for his new Ontario Colony, named after his former home in Ontario, Canada. His innovative, four-part colony plan included delivery of water to each lot through concrete and iron pipes, a main thoroughfare from one end of the settlement to the other, and a 20-acre tract of land for a proposed Chaffey College which the brothers made provision to endow, and they also moved to attract the best possible class of settlers through a reversionary clause in the deeds to each plot, forbidding the sale of liquor. An important part of George Chaffey’s dream for Ontario was the main thoroughfare, as beautiful as it was unusual, and which would capture the imagination and interest of people throughout the world. He laid out a straight, 15-mile long double boulevard, 200ft wide. He commissioned E. J. Jacquet to plant trees, especially selected by his brother William, for their resistance to heat and drought, as well as for their beauty. Palm (later to be removed), pepper, eucalyptus and grevilleas were planted in four distinct rows. Chaffey called this boulevard Euclid Avenue, after the famous mathematician. On September 15, 1903, a committee of distinguished landscape architects selected Euclid Avenue as one of the most beautiful thoroughfares in the world. George Chaffey was developing an international reputation as a first rate irrigation engineer. • Continued Page 21

Selecting an agent who is able to gain the best possible price and this may not necessarily be the agent who provides the lowest quote for their services. Also, you should not necessarily choose the agent who provides you with the highest estimated selling price for your property. It’s in the seller’s best interests to ask for comparable sales in the local area and the analysis of market trends used by the agent when he or she was developing the estimated selling price. Finally, the quality of an agent is directly linked to their education, training and access to market data. REIV Members undertake continuing professional development to maintain their membership and have access to Victoria’s most comprehensive array of market data. This ensures REIV Member agents keep up to date with changes to regulations, industry practices and market trends, and ensure they maintain ethical standards.

Selecting the estate agent to sell your home requires careful consideration. The REIV’s advice to sellers is that there are two aspects to choosing an estate agent on which they should be focused. The most important factor is the local reputation of the agent. Research commissioned by the REIV shows that home sellers prefer estate agents who are well regarded in the local area. Speaking with family, friends and neighbours provides you with information on the experience they have had with agents. Seeking advice from people you trust is an important source of information and can be just as valuable as an agency’s advertising and their website. Another other important factor is the commission. Sellers should compare the cost the agent is quoting to sell the property, the strategy behind the advertising and marketing campaign, and the agent’s professionalism. While comparing commissions is important, it should not be the only criterion. You should seek to engage an agent

Big Day Out BIGGEST Yet! By Slippery Stratos

Next year’s Big Day Out touring festival is certainly living up to its name. It’s shaping up as the BIGGEST year yet, and the first time all mainland festivals have sold out. The 2010 festival is jam-packed with some of the biggest names on the national and international music scene, including Muse, Lily Allen and Dizzee Rascal. Australian rock favourites Powderfinger, Eskimo Joe and Grinspoon are also on the billing. Next year’s tour gets under way in New Zealand on January 15, at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium. The Gold Coast’s Parklands will launch the Australian leg of the tour two days later, on January 17. It will then take in Sydney, Melbourne,Adelaide and Perth, between January 22 and January 31. In a bid to ensure as many music fans as possible get a chance to attend one of next year’s concerts, Big Day Out organisers have reserved the final 5000 tickets, which will be made available through an online ticket ballot via the Big Day Out website at www.bigdayout.com. Each Thursday, until December 24, tickets will be randomly drawn out of the ballot at 9pm EST. The weekly ballot ticket limit is two tickets per customers.People who are successful in the ballot will receive an email within 30 minutes of the draw, providing detail on how to complete the order.

1 CRAZY LOVE

MICHAEL BUBLÉ

MUSE If Muse’s rhetoric is anything to go by, the boys have big plans for next year’s festival. In their own words,“resistance is futile.The invasion has begun. Muse are taking over Big Day Out 2010.Their weaponry is advanced beyond our planet’s understanding – the most symphonic, intergalactic, bombastic, futuristic, astral-travelling musical arsenal the universe has ever heard.” Big plans indeed. POWDERFINGER It’s been an almost three-year wait between albums for ’Finger fans, and a five-year wait between Big Day Outs. But the drought breaks this summer with Golden Rule, the long-awaited new album, home to snapping, snarling, upbeat single All the Dreamers. Since first playing Big Day Out in 1994, Powderfinger have become one of our all-time favourites.They’re the people’s band with a never-ending supply of people’s anthems. LILY ALLEN A rebellious national treasure in her British homeland, Allen has been adopted Down Under too, her second album It’s Not Me, It’s You owning the charts in 2009 and going three-times platinum along the way. From LDN to The Fear, she mixes sunshine with sass, social commentary with sardonic two-fingered salutes.

MICHAEL JACKSON

3 COSMIC EGG

WOLFMOTHER

ESKIMO JOE Black Fingernails, Red Wine catapulted Freo lads Kav, Stu and Joel to the top of the Australian rock ladder; new album Inshalla is looking to take them even further.This is music made to fill the wide open spaces of Big Day Out:“The choruses are huge; the arrangements are ambitious,” says the Sydney Morning Herald.“Epic choruses, experimental sounds, wailing guitar heroics,” adds Rolling Stone. Epic, huge and heroic? That sounds like Eskimo Joe at big Day Out.

4 NEW MOON

SOUNDTRACK

GRINSPOON Australia’s rockingest hard rock band Grinspoon are no stranger to Big Day Out. At the turn of the century they were making us jump to Ready 1, and Rock Show. A couple of years later, Phil, Kristian, Pat and Joe slayed it with Lost Control, No Reason and Chemical Heart. Add a few years, and there they were again, A Hard Act to Follow. In 2010, Grinners are reborn, packing tunes from their sixth album, Six to Midnight.Tight, frenetic, tense and absolutely loved by Big Day Out punters, Grinspoon return in 2010 to pummel us as only they can. These are just a small sample of the massive number of bands on next year’s billing. For more information and the latest up to the minute details visit www.bigdayout.com.

The one-legged man boasts of 15 marriages (and divorces,) has so far fathered 78 kids, and says he’ll finally stop at 100. It’s one of the tall tales but true in the latest offering from the Ripley’s ‘Believe it or Not’ people. It’s 256 pages of…

church pastor in Germany… it was finally delivered in 2004. In 1948, Helen Swisshelm lost a signet ring while swimming in the Hudson River in 1948… someone found it and returned it to her – in 2001. And when James Lubeck lost his wallet overboard while fishing in Massachusetts in 1966, he gave up all hope of its recovery… but it was reeled in by an angler just four years ago. There’s a story about a fish (named Aussie) that has been swimming upside down all its life, the Indonesian businessman who dropped almost $11,000 in notes from a plane to promote his business… scissor-weilding bandits boarded a bus in Brazil, grabbed a girl and cut off her long ponytail, hoping to sell it to wigmakers. And what about the shoplifter who was so keen to make his getaway he left his 12-yearold son back in the shop… the boy gave police all the details they needed. And the train trip in Peru, where three Englishmen, all unknown to each other, were the only passengers

in one carriage. One was named Bingham, the second Powell, and the third had the surname BinghamPowell. They weren’t related. Then there was the Italian post office robber who fell in love with the female staff member… he returned the next day with flowers to ask her out… she recognised him and flirted long enough so police could get there. And speaking of love, what about the onelegged man from the United Arab Emirates who has been married 15 times, has fathered 78 children, and is aiming for ‘the ton’ before he turns 68. We could go on and on, but we’ll leave you with this gem. It relates to a Japanese kimono, dating back to 1657, and owned successively by three teenage girls, each of whom died before getting a chance to wear it. It was considered so unlucky that it was set on fire by a priest…but wind fanned the flames and started a fire that destroyed three-quarters of Tokyo, razing 9000 shops, 500 palaces, 300 temples and 61 bridges, and costing another 100,000 lives! OK, just one more. George Garrett from England had an obsession with super heroes, so he changed his name by deed poll to ‘Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman, Spiderman, Batman, Wolverine, The Hulk and The Flash Combined.

THERE’S a big eye on the cover, opening or closing depending on which angle you are looking. And below it are the words ‘Seeing is Believing’ …an introduction to the latest edition of Ripley’s Believe it or Not 256-page book, released in time for Christmas. Like the one we previewed for the first time last year, the 2009 version has an amazing collection of facts, figures, statistics and feats, backed up by graphic colour images of some of the most astounding sights the world has seen. There’s a dentist with no hands, the snake that swallowed a wallaby, an underwater sculptor, a four-eared cat, the exceptionally tall and the very, very small, and hundreds upon hundreds of interesting snippets from around the world. The ‘Incredible feats’ section features the snail lady and the cockroach eater, the human kite and waterfall swimmers, and the ‘Fantastic Food’ section tells us all about the potato peacock, insect sushi, fried spiders, food sticker art and chocolate wrestling. Then there’s the Artistic Licence, with giant fried eggs, matchstick faces, and balloon and deep sea sculptures, while ‘Amazing Science’ tells of the bomb-detector bees, lightning experiments and the tooth implant that restored a man’s sight! The Ripley story dates back to 1918, when New York Globe newspaper cartoonist Robert Ripley became fascinated by strange facts and feats from around the world. He started writing about various feats in athletics, and letters poured in, firstly from all over the United States, and then from around the world. Thousands of them, all wanting to add something unusual or unique to his collection. Then he started travelling, gathering much of the data himself. By 1940 he had visited 201 countries, covering almost one million kilometres. By this stage he had a Global readership of 80 million, his column was translated into 18 languages, and he was getting 170,000 letters a week. He built a large, private museum/ house for his growing collection of unusual and bizarre items in New York, and when that became too small, started building museums around the world. There are now 30 Ripley ‘Believe it or Not’ museums globally. Ripley died in 1949, but his research staff continued his life’s work, and the Ripley collection continues to record staggering annual growth as a result. In a long overdue section, the latest book tells about a book that was borrowed from a university library in Cambridge in 1667, and returned in 1955 – that’s 288 years overdue! Then there was the letter sent in 1718 from a

The Chaffey Brothers’ California successes were noticed by Australian government officials, who were grappling with killer droughts in their own young country. Courted by the then Australian Cabinet Minister, and later Prime Minister, Alfred Deakin who was chairman of the Royal Commission on Water supply and Irrigation, George Chaffey set out for Australia in1886. Misled by an over-scrupulous agent in Stephen Cureton, and with thinly stretched resources, time and attention over too many irrigation projects initially spelled disaster for the Chaffeys in Australia. Their Australian adventures proved to be technically impressive, but financially ruinous. Arriving back in the United states in the late 1880s, George Chaffey became associated with the most ambitious reclamation scheme the New World had witnessed up to that time -– the irrigation of the Colorado Desert. It has been written that George Chaffey was both repelled and fascinated by the vast rainless, lifeless, treeless and waterless expanses of California, which could be transformed through the marvels of irrigation.  On April 3, 1900, Chaffey signed a contract with the California Development Company to construct canals capable of diverting 400,000 acre-feet of water a year from the Colorado River to the arid Imperial Valley in California. The complexity and variety of problems associated with this eventually successful irrigation project attest to George Chaffey’s abilities as a master builder, manager, diplomat and problem-solver.  It seems an understatement to say that George Chaffey was a man of vision. He was the first to provide guaranteed water to individual settlers and land owners, the first to form a water mutual using community cooperation, the first to combine hydro-electric development and irrigation and the first to recognise the necessity for water conservation.  Living up to the family motto, Nosce Te Ipsum, (Know Thy Self), George Chaffey was endowed with an insistent desire for selfrealisation and genius that made him such a constructive force in two hemispheres.  According to Cr Eckel, later successes in the irrigation districts of Sunraysia and the Riverland proved the genius and foresight of the Chaffey brothers, and he has promised to continue his work with the Chaffey Trail project to ensure the legacy lives on, with suitable recognition.

While the Mildura Weekly has just entered its fourth year of production, an avid reader has just come into possession of a magazine that dates back to the start of World War Two. And it features a colourful story on Mildura titled…

Jumping the Rattler North • OF DAYS GONE BY: Keith Tulloch, RIGHT, takes a trip down memory lane with this magazine, LEFT, and a detective and fruit picker play cat and mouse on the Rattler, BELOW.

News, they were the days of “a harvest of gold and green, purple and burgundy,” with 50,000 tons of fruit ripening on mile after mile of vines at Mildura, Merbein and Red Cliffs. The unnamed news reporter described the people who came to pick the fruit as a motley, carefree throng – among them university students, mums with kids to support, pensioners and schoolboys, along with the usual itinerant workers and ‘swaggies.’

And apart from rail travel, legal or otherwise, they arrived by varying means, including on foot, bike or motorcycle, horse and cart – with a few arriving on one of the first air services that had been recently introduced. The news magazine was descriptive, thanks to a firsthand account of the action after sending a news crew to the region for the start of the 1940 harvest. They told of girls caught crouching in cattle trucks, police searches of every rail freight wagon and passenger car, and dozens of ‘freeloaders’ scarpering through the bush to avoid detection and capture. • Continued Page 25

AN illustrated story in an Australian Picture-News magazine of almost 70 years ago is certain to bring back many memories – some not so fond – of a blockie’s life back in the early years of World War Two. Retired Mildura retailer, teacher and manager Keith Tulloch, 70, was flicking through one of the dozen old magazines he bought through Ebay when the fourpage feature titled ‘Jumping the Rattler North’ caught his eye. It will evoke many memories for older readers who remember the days when fruit pickers arrived by the hundreds for the annual Sunraysia dried fruit harvest. The ‘rattler’ referred to the steam train that was the main means of travel between Melbourne and Mildura at the time. While many fruit pickers got tickets to travel on the train, others simply ‘jumped the rattler’ to hitch a ride, hiding under tarpaulins, in or between carriages for the 550-kilometre journey, and it often turned into a game of ‘hide and seek’, as police and detectives boarded the train anywhere between Ouyen and Mildura to weed out the ‘freeloaders’ or undesirables. The February 17, 1940 edition of Picture-News, then starting only its second year of publication, describes in words and photographs the lengths to which pickers would go to evade the long arm of the law. Often they would jump from a moving train before it reached a station, hiding in nearby scrub until the coast was clear. Those who missed getting back on the train had a long walk in the scorching summer heat, unless they were lucky enough to hitch another ride. According to the Picture-

‘Green’ light needed on waste action •  From Page 5 Coach-bolted and tek-screwed together, it would make an economic, long-lasting small garden bed for fresh food, Steve said. Then there was the plastic sheeting, ranging from 4mm to 10mm thick, that Steve could see as being a viable alternative to timber when mending the boats of traditional fishermen of Asia to our north. Easily joined by melting its edges together using heat, the thinner example Chris demonstrated could also be moulded to shape using the same method. It could also be used, Steve thought, as roofing material. “I do not see why not,” was Chris’ reply. And then there were the larger posts. They, Steve said, could be used instead of harvesting precious forest timbers, and form the basic frame for a inexpensive pole house. The list of uses for the growing range of Ausplaztik products just seemed to go on and on as the pair traded ideas and solutions. Another example was the freeway noise abatement panels Chris has been experimenting with. In Steve’s mind they became a wall garden. “You could fill that,” he said pointing to the panel that resembled a large, covered-in pallet, “with a growing medium and punch a few holes in it and you’d have a wall garden.” Ausplaztik’s floating islands, constructed primarily to support water plant growth for the increasing number of man-made wetlands around the nation, would be a great way to help reduce evaporation from

He said scaled down, or maybe even made mobile, equipment like that used by Ausplaztik to recycle waste plastics from poly pipe to polystyrene, from milk bottles to the white grape covers that predominate in Sunraysia vineyards during the summer months, into usable products, including innovative building materials, was well worth exploring. It had the potential, Steve said, to offer the same positive social and environmental outcomes the world over... creating jobs, recycling problem waste and producing ‘green’, sustainable products.

‘Green’ passion

•  TALKING SHOP: Steve Cran, left, and Chris Curran discuss the attributes and possible uses for a length of 4mm recycled plastic sheet. open irrigation channels and other waterways, Steve said. Laying them on top would virtually turn an open channel into a pipe, he said, and growing some plants on them would enhance the effect.... and provide fodder of food depending on the plant.

Impressive operation Looking past the products and at the Ausplaztik recycling operation itself, an impressed Steve said he could see similar operations springing up in towns and cities across Australia... and around the world. He said domestically, a factory like Ausplaztik’s Mildura operation had the potential to create thousands of ‘green’ jobs around the country

while at the same time offer a sustainable answer for a huge, and mushrooming, plastics waste challenge. A true win-win. Turning to the global perspective, Steve said Third World countries byand-large are natural resource poor. And they are also, often by necessity he added, bad managers of those resources. “They’ll cut down the last tree to mend their boat,” he said. But they have plenty of plastic! Steve said. “It’s in the streets, it’s in the rivers and in the ocean.” “It’s everywhere.” “Those countries face the same challenge we do... we’re just much better at hiding it. After all it is hard to hide a waste problem for long on a small island.”

Both men are passionate about the environment and are conscious of doing their bit to reverse the damage they see modern man is doing to the planet. And the technology Ausplaztik has at its disposal, they acknowledge, is revolutionary. The pair also agrees they struggle to identify a limit to what could be done with the product. As an example of its versatility, Chris revealed he is now in talks with rail authorities about making plastic ‘sleepers’. They would expand too much in the heat if they were laid between Mildura and Melbourne for example, he says, but they would be perfect in a cooler, underground situation. “Particularly where moisture is an issue,” Chris said. “Plastic sleepers won’t rot or warp.” And the real beauty of it is that the vast majority of Ausplaztik’s products can be recycled again and again... a case of yesterday’s bollard,

for example, being today’s vineyard post and so on. Steve is keen for more people to know about what is happening at Ausplaztik. “We need to tell people, to show people what can be done... and how it would benefit all of us in the long run.” Steve said the Earth was in increasing danger as man takes and takes, and gives so little back. Recycling innovations, like the Ausplaztik technology, he said, offered part of the solution. Talking globally again, Steve asserted the technology could be the answer to The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also described as the Eastern Garbage Patch or the Pacific Trash Vortex – a gyre of marine litter in the central North Pacific Ocean and estimated to be twice the size of Texas. The patch is characterised by exceptionally high concentrations of suspended plastic and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre. Despite its size and density, the patch is not visible from satellite photography because it consists of very, very small pieces, almost invisible to the naked eye and most of its contents are suspended beneath the surface of the ocean. Steve and Chris agree that a ship, properly outfitted, may well be able to suck the plastic out of the sea, recycle it onboard and be off-loading posts or other useful products when it returned to port. Pie in the sky stuff? No, the pair said, describing it as quite ‘do-able’ if someone was willing. And then they were off again... the ideas coming thick and fast so I slipped away and left them to it!

Making Victoria FireReady:

If you live in a bushfire prone area the safest option is to leave the night before, or early in the morning. The safest option is to leave early in the day if you live in a bushfire prone area and your Bushfire Survival Plan is to leave. Only stay if your home is well prepared, well constructed and you can actively defend it. The safest option is to leave early in the day if you live in a bushfire prone area and your Bushfire Survival Plan is to leave.

If you live in a bushfire prone area and your Bushfire Survival Plan is to leave, the safest option is to leave at the beginning of the day.

New Fire Danger Ratings. Look for them, act on them. Victoria has adopted the new national Fire Danger Rating scale to help individuals and communities understand the level of fire danger on any given day. The new ratings recognise the significant increase in severe bushfire conditions over the past decade and the greater level of danger to the community, as experienced on Saturday 7 February 2009. It’s important for all Victorians to be aware of the ratings, which will feature on weather forecasts, in newspapers, websites, radio and TV. The new ratings provide a clear prediction of likely fire behaviour, including how difficult it would be to put a fire out once it has started. They provide information on: • The sort of bushfire behaviour that could be experienced on that day.

Check your Bushfire Survival Plan.

• The type of threat a bushfire may pose to life and property on that day. Be aware of the Fire Danger Rating every day during the fire season, and be prepared to take the appropriate actions. For more information go to www.cfa.vic.gov.au

Jumping the Rattler North • From Page 23 Photographs showed the favoured dress of the day – detectives in suit and hat, despite the scorching temperatures, and the pickers and ‘swaggies’ in more casual gear, including the traditional blue singlet, each with their meagre belongings packed into a carry bag, and usually a rolled-up swag over the shoulder. There were photographs of picking in full swing, groups in after-hours sing-alongs, basic accommodation of the day (tents), and pickers washing their clothes in the then clear waters of the Murray River. The magazine carried many other features, photos and cartoons, with a war summary on all fronts – land, sea and in the air, complete with explanatory maps. There were stories on health issues, with a picture story on the only travelling baby health centre in the world – the ‘caravan’ that travelled to Mildura to care for the infants of itinerant fruit pickers. Readers of the day learned all about how the cavalry and Light Horse Regiments were in full training at Torquay, and how the first of the big bombers were arriving in parts from the United States, ready to be assembled for the war effort. When photographs weren’t available, there was an artist’s impression of an armed merchant ship valiantly defending itself against attack from a German U-boat… and it looked like they were giving as good as they got. The feature story ‘The Ace of Death,’ written by Sir William Thomas, makes for interesting reading, likewise the list of superstitions for which famous people of the day were noted – the actor who ate a raw egg before every performance…the comedian who had to whistle before going on stage…another actor who lit up a smoke to scare away evil spirits…and Sydney Wheeler – he just had to kiss the first girl he came across in the theatre, for good luck… nice one! The late – and great – Walt Disney rates more than

Rick Kelly snares Jack Daniel’s first podium RICK Kelly secured the first podium finish for he and brother Todd’s Jack Daniel’s team last weekend, finishing third in the opening round of the Island 300 event held at Phillip Island’s Grand Prix Circuit, whilst securing second in race two. “We all really did a great job,” Rick said after Saturday’s race. “Personally this was my first shootout since New Zealand, so it was a bit of a nervous one, and I think I could have got a bit more out of the car if I had a couple more races under my belt. “For the whole team, and for our sponsors, to get our first podium is awesome. We’re three quarters into our first year so this is great. “The pace we’ve had in the last three rounds has been great as well, and as a team we’re really happy. The last four races we’ve shown that we’ve got some great pace and that’s really exciting. “I’m a happy boy sitting with a trophy in hand.” Brother Todd echoed his team mate’s thoughts, saying that it had been good leading the pack throughout both the weekend’s races. “It was good to have both Jack

Daniel’s Commodores up there, and for once look out the windscreen and not have too many cars in front,” he said. “The car still needs a little bit of fine tuning and there is plenty of room for improvement, but we’re certainly starting to get it together.” Phillip Island has been a happy

hunting ground for both Kelly’s in the past, with Todd winning four individual races, and Rick qualifying in the top 10, and finishing in the top 10 overall, each year since 2004. And while celebration was the theme after the race, the group couldn’t avoid an incident involving Todd and Craig Lowndes which almost tarnished their debut podium. Todd battled hard for several laps with Lowndes, with the two cars making contact on lap 15, lead-

ing to Rick ending up in the gravel trap. A safety car was required to remove Todd’s car, dropping him a lap down, and effectively taking him out of the race. “I don’t what he (Lowndes) was doing there,” Todd said. “We were racing really well up until then. He passed me at MG (Corner) and we swapped sides for a little bit. It was really good, enjoyable racing without anyone doing anything silly. “Then he went in narrow into turn one, and had a bit of a slide and I basically got passed him and gave him plenty of room into turn two and he’s just come in and speared me off. “He hit my rear bumper, so it was a little bit of a shame.” As a result of differing pit strategies, Rick came out on track in third, with Todd close behind in fourth for the early part of the race. This led to a first-time sight for Jack Daniel’s supporters, with the two commodores running nose-totail for most of the middle stages of the 22 lap race prior to the Lowndes collision. While Todd was left disappointed, Rick was able to storm home, with Jamie Whincup taking out both the weekend’s races.

• WELL DONE!: Rick Kelly had every reason to smile after putting Jack Daniel’s racing on the V8 Supercar podium for the first time this year.

Rick said that while he was happy for the team, he would have loved to be able to share the moment with brother Todd. “The biggest thing for me is that I’m really disappointed Todd couldn’t be up there with me,” he said. “He had a couple of guys deal with him quite harshly from what I saw out there. It’s just a little bit disappointing that some aggressive driving took Todd away from being up there as well.” Both brothers have spent considerable hours this season getting the new team off the ground, with Rick saying that it had

taken time away from his driving routines, and that he was only now starting to find a balance between his two roles. “I’ve been quite busy with the team in the first half of the season, and my driving could have been a little bit better in the mid-year,” he said. “I’ve started to focused again on training, getting the most out of the car and staying focused 100 percent of the time and not making any mistakes. “I’m starting to get back to where I was 12 or 18 months ago, and the car’s working well.”

In March 2002, he established John Kohnke Products and since then he has provided a nutritional consultancy service to trainers in many disciplines as well as studs and the owners and riders of equestrian horses.

The heat could play havoc with SCA cricket By VINNIE RODI

second win of the season. Coomealla Wentworth on the other hand will be looking to bounce back after suffering its first loss, with the boys in blue going down in a thriller against Mildura Settlers.

WHILE itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not summer yet, Milduraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest, and rather unique, heatwave could cause trouble for the Sunraysia Cricket Association tomorrow, with a possibility matches being called off under a new rule. The rule states that matches will be cancelled should the mecury exceed 43 degrees, with the Bureau of Meteorologyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (BOM) forecasts during the last three days making it hard for SCA officials to reach a final decision. On Wednesday the BOM stated tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mercury was set to exceed 43 degrees, while prior to the Mildura Weekly going to print that forecast had reviewed to 41 degrees. SCA administration manager, Peter Woodford, said a final decision would have to be left until the last minute, with the final decision to be based on the BOMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forecast this afternoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a duty of care to ensure that every one associated with our organisation is looked after,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Match of the round

Ruling a surprise â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be implementing the rule in November, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing about the weather, things happen that are beyond our control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The final call will be made at 4.30pm Friday, and if the BOM predicts 43 degress than all cricket matches will be called off, if not than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be right to go.â&#x20AC;? Mr Woodford said that should cancellation occur it would include both senior and junior divisions, and will even see Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Under 10s and 12s competition called off despite definite forecasts of a cool change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though a change is expected to sweep through tomorrow night, it just wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fair on curators,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So while there may be a few disappointed youngsters, we have to do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best for everyone.â&#x20AC;? Should cricket resume this week, Mildura East will be looking to continue its winning run when it takes on Coomealla Wentworth.

â&#x20AC;˘ FILL ME UP!: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what grade of cricket you play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a hot day is a hot day and plenty of rehydration is in order.

East sneaked home last week against Workers Gol Gol, after losing the toss and being asked to bowl. Apart from gallant efforts from returning middle order batsmen David Hogarth (32) and Dale Ingram (36), Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bowlers were too good, restricting Workers to 156 off 38 overs. Young quicks Matt Brooks (2/25) and Andrew Ross (1/15)

looked impressive, as was Fabian Farley (3/35). In reply Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggling batting line-up looked set for another long day, after captain and run machine Tom Vadlja was out for a duck. However a well made 55 from fellow opener Jason Harris, and a 40 n.o. from middle order player Andrew Willison helped steady the ship, guiding East toward its

In what was the match of the round, Coomie looked set to continue its inning ways after Glen Stephen (78), Jeremy Giddings (21) and Tim Plumridge (36) helped guide the away side to 3/143 in the matches early-goings. That was before heroics from Setts bowler Dan Wood, who claimed 5/33 including a hat-trick, helped bring the home side back in contention. Despite the middle order collapse, which included loosing six wickets for 50 runs, Coomie still managed to set an imposing total of 195. Enter Setts captain Richie Wyld, whose 66 at the top of the innings helped steer the home side to its first win, with the side bringing up the winning runs in the last over of the day. Coomie, who will be looking to make amends, should prove too strong for East, whose batsmen are still struggling to find their groove. Mildura West will take on Mildura Settlers, with Setts sure to be carrying a lot of momentum after last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stellar performance against ladder-leaders CoomieWentworth. Setts performed like a side possessed, rising to every challenge on their way to chasing down Coomieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mammoth total. As previously mentioned captain Richie Wlyd starred with the bat while opening bowler Dan Wood was likewise sensational with the ball. West on the other hand would be disappointed with their efforts last week, falling short against Merbein South. Merbein won the toss and chose to bat in hot conditions, with opener Mark White scoring 50 to help get the ball rolling. He was well supported by wicket-keeper and skipper Adam Thomson (52), with the home side setting West a target of 192.

While Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bowlers shared the load in terms of wickets, with Brent Johns, Ashley Casey and Shane Driscoll each taking two, they struggled to contain Merbeinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scoring. West had no answers with the bat, amassing only 149 in reply, falling significantly short of the target. Apart from Kristjan Hobbs (38), no other batsmen offered much resistance against a resurgent South bowling attack. This game will be close, with Settlers holding the upper hand after an all-round confidence boost last wee, while West will need to continue to test young players like Ben Christodoulou, who has looked impressive in the middle order, and continually look to improve in all areas. In the final game of the round Irymple will take on Merbein, with both sides getting their first crack at one another since last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Final. The Swallows are sure to be fresh after a weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s break, while Merbein will be full of confidence after securing its first win.

Back to their best South looked back to their best against Mildura West, especially in the bowling stocks with Shane Trinick, Matt Walder and Tony Trinick all amongst the wickets. Their batting line-up has also shown improvement in recent weeks, a trait that their going to need to continue against an inform Swallows outfit. Irymple have similarly looked back to their best in their last two games, amassing a huge total against Mildura Settlers, and decimating Workers Gol Gol. English import Matt Wilkinson has looked in touch with both the ball and bat, with young batsmen Jordan Payne and Rhys Webb also amongst the runs in recent weeks. If anything Irympleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bowling stocks could improve, with the possible return of young quick Jake Reed set to bolster the attack. Irymple will be out for pay back after last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiership loss, and on current form should prove too strong.

Cycling tour success THE annual Port to Port Cycling Tour has been hailed another outstanding success in 2009, with more than 450 riders braving hot conditions to help raise money for Mallee Family Care, Chances for Children, and other local charities. The event has raised more than $350,000 for MFC alone since its inception in 2000, with a further $35,000 going to the group this year. Held last weekend, competitors began at the ‘Port of Mildura’, travelling through Hattah, Kulkyne National Park, Wemen, Boundary Bend, Swan Hill, Kerang and Cohuna before reaching the finish line some 250 kilometres away at the Port of Echuca. Mildura Councillor Vernon Knight, one of the men behind the tour’s inception 10 years ago, said that despite hot conditions riders had thoroughly enjoyed the trip. “We had plenty of volunteer medics and marshals, along with four ambulance officers who also volunteered their time and they did a fantastic job ensuring everyone was looked after,” he said. “Despite the heat everyone had a great time, and really enjoyed the experience.” Cr Knight said that Mallee Family Care had been inundated with messages of thanks since the event’s conclusion. “It was just another great event this year, and everyone is already looking ahead to next year,” he said.

Junior basketballers in really ‘hot’ form MILDURA’S junior Heat basketball representative sides have been in preparation mode this week ahead of the WHK Mildura Junior Classic Tournament. The tournament will see more than 30 Division One and Two teams from Broken Hill, Swan Hill, Wodonga and Horsham make the trip, with the home court advantage sure to be a welcome one for Mildura. Mildura Basketball Association General Manager Marea Dickeson said this weekend should prove entertaining, with many talented youngsters to be on display. “Locally we have some very talented players, across all age groups, so it should make for fantastic spectating,” she said. And while Mildura will be hard-pressed to come out on top, they will also rue a missed opportunity to take on powerhouses Bendigo and Shepparton, who will not travel to Mildura due to its remoteness “It’s very disappointing that those teams can’t make it,” Marea said. “In the past Bendigo and Shepparton have provided some fierce competition, and really

pushed our youngsters to their limits. “While teams from Bendigo have made the trip in the past, the problem with Mildura is the distance. “Bendigo and Shepparton have the option to pick which tournaments they want to attend, something we can’t afford to do if we want our kids to play the best. “Fortunately Horsham are quite strong, as are some of the other teams, so the challenge is certainly there.” T e a m s ranging from Under 12’s through to 18’s will take part in the tournament, with Marea saying that all of the representative sides had performed well so far this season. “All of our junior sides have started really well this year, with both the boys and girls sides claiming tournament wins in Broken Hill, Swan Hill and Horsham,” she said. “The Under 16 girls in particular have continued their winning ways after a successful season, (where they became the

first Mildura side in more than 40 years to win the Basketball Victoria Country Council State title), and the Under 12 girls team has looked very impressive as well. “Add to the fact that our boys teams are showing good signs and it’s been a great start for Mildura basketball.” Apart from Swan Hill, where the region’s Second and Third Division teams had the chance to showcase their talent, Mildura has been dominant. All teams, barring the Under 18 boys, walked away from Horsham with a tournament win, while in Broken Hill, the most recent tournament held, eight out of the nine teams came home victorious. Broken Hill was also successful on a individual level for several youngsters, with Torben McFarlane (Under 14), Demi Wright (Under 14), Jack Saunders (Under 16) and Ebony Sandiman (Under 16) named the tournament’s Most Valuable Players in their respective age groups. Those players will again play vital roles for their teams, as Mildura looks to continue their winning form, with matches to start from 8am tomorrow, and continue from 8am on Sunday. Entry on Saturday will be $5, with no charge applying on Sunday. “It would be wonderful to see each of our teams winning on the weekend, a clean sweep would be ideal,” Marea said. “Regardless it’s going to be a great tournament, and the MBA is encouraging locals to come out and support our teams.”

There’s an SPORT art to sport Mildura Weekly

Friday, November 13, 2009

MORE than 50 students from Mildura West Primary School had the chance to mix art with sport yesterday, with a special cricket clinic held at the Mildura Arts Centre alongside artist Heather Lee’s ‘Some of it was Cricket’ exhibition. Students were split into three groups, two remaining outside to take part in training drills organised by Cricket Victoria representatives Dan McInnes and Andrew Farlie, while the third group had the chance to see the exhibition up close. ‘Some of it was cricket’ attempts to unravel cricket’s history in Australia, with Heather exploring the experiences of Indigenous cricketers, and the precedents they had to overcome to excel in the game. Cricket Victoria’s Andrew Fairlie that while it was a unique partnership, the day had achieved the desired result. “Cricket Victoria has for a while now being using different techniques to promote the game,” he said. “And while this is a first for me, it’s certainly worked in my opinion. “From a cricketing point of view we wanted to focus on the kids having fun, which from all reports they did, while inside student’s experienced some great artwork, and learned about the history of the game.” More information about the ‘Some of it was Cricket’ exhibition is available by contacting the Mildura Art Centre on 5018 8330.

• PUTTING THEIR ART INTO IT: Mildura West Primary School students Lachlan O’Niel, Keelan Collier and Daniel Gates were amongst the bunch to enjoy both sport and art yesterday, joined by Cricket Victoria’s Andrew Farlie at the Mildura Art Centre.
